MAN SENT TO STATE PRISON FOR 6-20 YEARS FOR DRUG DEALING CASES IN BUCKS COUNTY

Brian O'Connell

A 31-year-old man was sentenced on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022, to six to 20 years in state prison for three drug-dealing cases in 2021, including one committed in the Bucks County Correctional Facility that led to an inmate’s overdose.

Brian Joseph O’Connell, of Philadelphia, entered open guilty pleas on three counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, one for each of the cases.

President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr., sentenced O’Connell to 2 ½ to 5 years in one case; 1 to 5 years in a second; and 2 ½ to 10 in the third, with all sentences running consecutively.  

The first case stemmed from a Bucks County Detectives Drug Strike Force investigation where O’Connell sold 27.87 grams of methamphetamine to a confidential informant on Jan. 7, 2021.
